Commercial vehicle designers are increasingly introducing advanced functionality, which was previously developed for passenger vehicles. Driver assistance and automation, infotainment options, 360-degree camera systems, high speed V2V and V2I communication, and a wide range of essential safety features are now being integrated into commercial vehicles as well.
The HDSCS connector series is a growing product line that offers a high level of design flexibility for applications where sealed, rugged connections are needed. HDSCS connectors offer several cavity arrangements and mixed wire sizes. The rugged, thermoplastic connectors have a secondary lock with poke-yoke feature and can be used for in-line or flange mount applications. HDSCS connectors are available in five housing sizes and four keying options.
The TE Terminal Cutter tool enables operators to easily cut side-feed, front-carrier terminal strips and reels. This gives customers the ability to create loose piece terminals with precision.
TE Connectivity’s (TE) high-power AMP MCP 9.5 two position connectors are designed for harsh environments in wire-to-wire and wire-to-board connections.
TE Connectivity’s sealed direct wire ISO fuse and relay enclosure products control and distribute the current flow within a vehicle’s electric power network. They are available in several arrangements and are easy to mount by their optional flanges or by using DEUTSCH or AMPSEAL 16 connector mounting clips.
Whether it’s motorcycles, e-bikes, scooters, or Segways, TE is developing the connectivity solutions that will make two-wheeler vehicles greener and more connected.
TE Connectivity’s Jiffy Splice products offer a unique single terminal solution, which is designed to protect connections from dirt, dust, and water immersion up to three feet.
TE Connectivity’s Detector, a part of the DEUTSCH DT series, has an integrated LED that helps with troubleshooting. The environmentally sealed connector has a transparent housing that allows quick visual diagnosis.
TE Connectivity’s compact, IP67 rated, two position mini fuse holder accepts AMP MCP 2.8 contacts and can be mounted using standard DEUTSCH DT and AMPSEAL 16 connector mounting clips. This sealed mini fuse holder is engineered for reliability in applications where failure is not an option.
Whether you’re building a Controller Area Network for anything from on/off-highway, construction, material handling, agriculture machines, or your OEM fleet of fire engines, there is a DEUTSCH solution for your CAN needs. Options include several configurations: 2-wire, 3-wire, and 4-wire, with in-line and flange mount, along with splitters, heavy duty breakaway connectors, and an off-board 9-pin diagnostic connector.
The B016 receptacle modification helps prevent mis-mating. The B016 is available for the DT 12 way connectors, DT13/15, and DTF13/15 PCB connectors. In addition to the four keying positions (A, B, C, or D) and color coding, the B016 enhancement gives the user both visual and tactile proof of correct mating.
The DT series dust caps are made of either thermoplastic or durable plastisol and are designed to provide protection for the connector interface when the two halves are not mated. The plastisol caps, available for plugs and receptacles, are ideal for providing temporary protection from dirt, dust, and paint overspray. The thermoplastic caps provide an environmental seal for an unmated plug.
The DTM series EE04 modification and DTMH series connectors are environmentally sealed, high temperature connectors capable of operating in temperatures -55° to +150°C. They accept size 20 contacts and carry 7.5 amps each.
TE Connectivity’s AMPSEAL 16 hybrid lever is a sealed connector system that features a lever slide mechanism for mating and a slide in mounting clip. The mix of 24 size 16 and 4 size 12 terminals creates design flexibility for use in various vehicle applications.
DEUTSCH industrial bussed feedback receptacles are environmentally sealed connectors designed for use in heavy duty applications where multiple circuits require a common electrical pathway. Available in the DT series, DEUTSCH bussed connectors feature integrated bussbars with standard DEUTSCH contacts.
DEUTSCH DT connectors with diodes and resistors are useful anywhere you need to regulate power or protect a device against a potential power surge. A diode allows current to flow in one direction only. A resistor limits or blocks current flow in both directions.
Crimp tools are offered in several styles. Hand tools are used for field service or low volumes. For high volumes, a pneumatic tool with interchangeable dies and locators is used for solid contacts, while applicator dies are used for stamped & formed contacts.
The rugged LEAVYSEAL V-0 connectors include a flame retardant housing that utilizes UL-94 V-0 rated materials. LEAVYSEAL V-0 connectors are environmentally sealed and designed to withstand the demands of the construction, trucking, marine, and mining industries.
New straight and right angle backshells are available for AMPSEAL 16 connectors. The backshells accommodate conduit as well as shrink tube or braided cables. They feature a 90° elbow that allows for full 360° rotation.
The DEUTSCH DT and DTM series backshells are designed to snap onto and mate with all standard DT and DTM series connectors. The rigid, durable backshells offer a high level of protection and allow convoluted tubing to nest within the rear of the backshell. Straight (180°) and right angle (90°) versions and backshells with strain relief for jacketed cable are also available.
